Emily entered the I’m A Celebrity jungle just over a week ago and has already won over viewers.

After just one day Emily had viewers calling her their winner after her reaction to being thrown straight into a terrifying challenge which saw her jump out of a helicopter.

She amused fans when she shrieked as a leech feasted on her leg as she and her fellow campmates arrived in Snake Rock.

William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said at the time: “Emily is already one of the biggest names in the history of I’m A Celebrity and she is going to get a load of airtime.”
